Being a seemingly unique vehicle, one hopes that it has passed all testing requisite to meet Japanese emission standards.

I could have one of these. The only issue I see with it is that, if I remember correctly, Kanada's bike was electric. Replace the gas engine with an electric motor and it would be really cool.

Maybe the person who did it will modify it further later, since he already worked on it for ten years. ^^
